Tyler Lockett A Potential Cap Casualty?

Tuesday, February 20, 12:11 PM

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett could be a salary cap casualty this offseason. He's 31 years old and will carry a $27.8 million cap hit while coming off a sub-1,000-yard season in 2023. Lockett has been in his nine years in Seattle, but ESPN's Jeremy Fowler said it might be a tough dynamic to overcome in 2024. Lockett had 79 receptions on 122 targets for 894 yards and five touchdowns in 17 starts in 2023, but his yardage total was his lowest since his third year in the league in 2017. His contract also has an out clause in it for the 2024 season, so if it looks like he may not be back, he could exercise it and test the free-agent market. If Lockett were to leave, it would be great news for second-year wideout Jaxon Smith-Njigba, as he would become the No. 2 behind DK Metcalf.

Kadarius Toney Inactive For Super Bowl LVIII

Sunday, February 11, 5:13 PM

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (coach's decision) is officially a healthy scratch for Sunday's Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers. An apparent rift has grown between Toney and the team this playoffs, with the receiver accusing the Chiefs of misconstruing his injury status. Head coach Andy Reid indicated Toney would likely be inactive for the big game, and now it's official. He finishes the year having caught 27 of 39 targets for 169 yards and one touchdown through 13 regular-season games. He also added 31 rushing yards and 58 punt return yards. Rashee Rice, Travis Kelce, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling are expected to operate as Patrick Mahomes' top options in the passing game versus the Niners.
